    Garlic Peppered Smoked Corned Beef and Braise Cabbage

    Picked up a flat cut corned beef, soaked for 4 hours in water, changing the water ever hour. Separated the piece of point it had on it and very liberally seasoned with minced garlic and fresh ground pepper. Put meat indirect on the kettle with a couple pieces of cherry wood. Didn't monitor the kette temps or meat, once the meat had a nice bark I foiled.


    While the corned beef was smoking, I cut up two heads of cabbage, vidalia onion, added a stick of butter, salt, pepper, garlic and half a can of beer.

    After about 3 hours in the smoke, was satisfied with the bark an color, so it was time to foil until tender.


    I cut a small hole in the top of the cabbage for a 'little' smoke flavor for the first hour, then covered the hole.


    After about an hour rest, it was time to slice the meat. Fork tender, but slicable and very tasty if I may say so myself.




    Cabbage is nice and tender as well.

    My plate with whole grain stone ground mustard.

    that looks delicious!
    I bought a couple extra flat cut corned beef pieces for the freezer this week. I want to try your recipe out. Is the idea of soaking to get rid of the original spices?

    do you have any experience in making pastrami? A friend of mine has recently built a smoker and I would like to try making some venison pastrami.

    I love food but never post in this forum. Most of the dishes that you post in a thread look great but this one really hooked me. Well done!

    Wes,the soaking is to lower the sodium.....smoking without would make it almost inedible due to the saltiness. 'Pastrami' is basically smoked corned beef the way I did it, except you need to add coriander, then you have pastrami. I was aiming at getting something my daughter would eat, and I think the coriander would have made her snub it. I have a pastrami cook I did a while back, let me look for the link and I'll post it for you if you want to try.

    thanks! I'll give you a update if I get serious about the pastrami.
    I knew pastrami was basically smoked corned beef, but I didn't know about the need for less salt.
